This night I want to write by Mendes Biondo

This night I want to write

by Mendes Biondo

This night I want to write
things that make you smile
stay up late
stay up to hear the birds singing
outside the windows shut

If there is anything worth doing
it is to try to steal a smile
even without being able to see it
even if just to imagine it

is with this little that I feed
when the stomach is already full

  1. This poem becomes more interesting the more times you read it. It’ s like going to the fridge and finding something at last to fill you in at that late hour. Franco
